So unless I am mistaken, the bands name means Vile in Spanish which sounds pretty apt for a band that is seething venom. This self titled EP is the debut for VIL and comes with a slap to the face by a hand that is also holding broken glass. While the music is the standard mid-fi black everyone has come to love through the likes of Mgla, VIL continues that tradition with songs that despite their length, feel like churning journeys of riffs and atmosphere. I can always appreciate short and effective debuts and this EP sings to the halls of Hell with the choral chants of the dammed.
